KSHE Klassics Show, February 12th, 2017

This morning's was a truly frustrating listening experience.

Not the program itself, which was the schtuff that dreams are made on, nor with my Internet connection, which was fine. No, the blame rests squarely on the shoulders of the firewall i installed yesterday, Comodo. At around 8:30 a.m. i tried to connect to the V.P.N. i need in order to listen to KSHE (as their audio stream is blocked outside the U.S.A.) and Comodo didn't like it. Every thirty seconds a warning would pop asking if i trusted this application. I kept clicking yes, of course, but the warning kept appearing, even when i had the "remember my answer" box checked. There was much effing and blinding by me until, at a couple of minutes past nine, i finally connected.

And Comodo didn't like my browser either -- or perhaps it just doesn't like classic rock. Those alerts started popping up every thirty seconds again and i kept clicking "allow" and still they came. I wound up listening to a good part of the show on my iPad as kept starting and restarting the laptop just to get rid of those damned alerts! (Needless to say i ultimately uninstalled Comodo and went back to Zone Alarm's firewall -- and that required yet another restart -- but at least Zone Alarm likes classic rock.)
